Wiki loves monuments 2019 Photo contest in Armenia and Artsakh
Armenia took part in Wiki Loves Monuments contest twice։ in 2013 and 2015. The contest was organized and coordinated in Armenia by Wikimedia Armenia. Earlier, Armenian Parliament had already amended Armenian law on copyright to allow freedom of panorama in Armenia by the initiative of WMAM. Artsakh also joined Wiki loves Monuments contest with Armenia, but as there is no FoP in Artsakh, it took photos of monuments whose architect died before 1949.
Armenia has about 25 000 state-registered monuments. Most of these are not widely known; many are hidden in forests, mountains, and rocks, and some are unfortunately endangered. Armenian participants of the contest faced the challenge to find monuments in the lists, photograph them and upload them to Wikipedia Commons (for most of the participants it was their first time to contribute to any Wikimedia project).
